Subject: Hebrew/Yiddish original for "Lawrence"

Can anyone suggest possible Hebrew or Yiddish originals for the name
"Lawrence"? This was the name my maternal grandfather's father used
in Canada, and my mother has no idea of what he would have been called
before he emigrated. I realise that he may have chosen "Lawrence" out of
the blue, but I have to at least make a stab at finding his Hebrew or
Yiddish name(s).
